california lyrics – band de soleil

when i came back home from the usa
i had nothin’ in my pockets and not a lot to say
though i knew somehow we would meet real soon
but the way you’ve been avoidin’ me
it’s like i’m livin’ on the moon
here i am on this side of the stars
livin’ in california
and sometimes i get out of reach in the bars
dreamin’ about my life
and maybe one day i’ll take a wife
though i spent some time on the evil road
i’ve done things that i’m ashamed of
oh man it’s such a heavy load
though i knew somehow we would meet real soon
but the way you’ve been avoidin’ me
it’s like i’m livin’ on the moon
here i am on this side of the stars
livin’ in california
and sometimes i get out of reach in the bars
dreamin’ about my life
and maybe one day i’ll take a wife
oh
i miss you girl
your dreams are more than i can take
you are the love of my life
but i could be my biggest mistake
ah babe my heart’s turnin’ like a wheel
i feel emotion for you but i just can’t tell if it’s real
when i came back home from the usa
i had nothin’ in my pockets and not a lot to say
though i knew somehow we would meet real soon
but the way you’ve been avoidin’ me
it’s like i’m livin’ on the moon
here i am on this side of the stars
livin’ in california
and sometimes i get out of reach in the bars
dreamin’ about my life
and maybe one day i’ll take a wife
oh ooooh baby oh i miss you girl
